Mackenzie Mountains Expedition
Principal Investigator: Enkelmann, Eva
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The research team plan to test the hypothesis that the reactivation of mountain building processes in the Mackenzie’s is due to the growth of the St. Elias Mountains. The research team will collect field observations and rock samples for various dating techniques that allow quantification of the rates and timing of surface uplift over thousands and million year time scales. The results will be com...

Detailed bedrock mapping in the Indin Lake area
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1995 1994
Summary: This will be the researcher's concluding summer for this project. The detailed mapping data (structural, petrological) in combination with the geochemical and geochronological sampling will be accomplished by foot and boat traverses with occasional fixed and rotary wing support. All data will be entered digitally for computer map compilation....

Detailed Bedrock Mapping in the Winter Lake Supracrustal Belt
Principal Investigator: Hrabi, Blair
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: This will be the final summer of field work for this project. The detailed mapping data in combination with geochemistry will enable the researcher to gie a detailed geological history of the area, including timing of certain geological events (age of volcanism and granite plutons) as well as a deformational history....

Geology and Structure of Prince Patrick and Adjacent Islands
Principal Investigator: Harrison, J. Christopher
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: A continuing project, the researchers will define the nature of the solid earth that makes up the bedrock beneath the Arctic Islands. This involves the examination of existing maps and air-photographs, the identification of rock types in the field, the measurement of the orientation of rock layers and similar features with a surveyor's hand held compass and the collection of small samples for addi...

Displacement Analysis on Major Faults, N.W. Ellesmere and Axel Heiberg Islands
Principal Investigator: Schwerdtner, W.M.
Licensed Year(s): 1991 1990 1988
Summary: The Researcher and team will continue to conduct their study in pure geology. They will apply new field methods to major faults of the Eureka Sound fold belt. The rocks under study are exceptionally preserved (not weathered) in the dry arctic climate. The work will contribute to the understanding of Eurekan orogeny....
